Various questions regarding overclock, performance, graphics cards....

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey, I'm new to the forum so I'll start off by saying hello. I have many questions and I hope someone knows the answer to them.....
1. How far do you think I can overclock my old Brisbane CPU? I'm planning to hold out for a 45nm processor to upgrade.... This leads to my next question
2. My motherboard supports HT 3.0 and the new Phenom processors... Will it probably support new 45nm processors when they come out at the end of this year or next year?
3. How do I overclock my RAM and what settings are stable?
4. Does ATI Radeon cards have a driver like the Omega for the Nvidia where I'm able to configure more freely and if they have it, is it better than drivers from ATI?
THX 4 ur help guys

1. I ran my 3600x2 brisbane up to 3.119ghz, I don't know your board nor have I ever heard of it.
2. I would guess it would support them at some diminished capacity, but again don't know a thing about your board, a link to some stats would be a great help.
3. The ram will automatically overclock when you raise your fsb, you will probably have to turn it down some, as it will take 328 fsb to get 3.119ghz on your cpu. As for timings all ram is different you will have to do some testing but I would guess when you pass 900-950mhz you will need to loosen the timings to 5-5-5-18 just to be safe.
4. No clue, ati is where I am going but its been a long time after they screwed me.
